Role Description

Toledo: (Lead) the only one in the group who can read; he is self-taught, and often misunderstands or misapplies his knowledge; quick to penetrate to the core of a situation though, and his insights are thought provoking; can be pushy, a showoff, but this seems to come from his desire to improve himself and his lot, and frustration with his ability to do so; plays piano in Ma's band. Note: Music will be recorded, but skill in this instrument would be a plus.
